Marianne Williamson, Evening Song.

From August 11 until September 15, the Whistler House Museum of Art will be showing "Interplay: Fiber and Art Quilts 2018" in the Parker Gallery. Jurors Wen Redmond and Janice Jones, themselves accomplished fiber artists, selected 42 original quilts from over 100 submissions to create the exhibition.

Each one is varied in color, composition, and technique, showcasing the expertise of each artist. Every viewer of "Interplay" will find quilts that catch their eye. There will be a reception for "Interplay: Fiber and Art Quilts 2018" on Saturday, August 11 from 2:00 p.m.⎻4:00 p.m. in the Parker Gallery.

The Life of Forms:
Susan Heideman and Michelle Lougee

August 13⎻September 7, 2018
Reception: Thursday, August 16, 6:00 p.m.⎻8:00 p.m.
Artist Talk: Thursday, September 6, 6:00 p.m.⎻7:00 p.m.
Chandler Gallery Hours: 10:00 a.m.⎻5:30 p.m.

The focus of Michelle Lougee's and Susan Heideman's art is the dazzling interplay of organisms swirling around and within us. Inside/outside; plant/animal/mineral; micro/macro; we explore and confound the connections, contradictions, and borders among organic forms. From the high-speed acrobatic maneuvers of cell proteins to the swelling of larval cocoons, we aim to reveal the drama of these quotidian yet imagination-defying entities.
